Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation (Acupuncture Facelift)

In the west, the cosmetics industry spends billions of dollars yearly to convince us that "beauty is but skin deep". Chinese medicine looks at the facial skin as a state of health of our internal organs and the strength of internal Qi (chi) flow. Acupuncture can improve circulation, increase the flow of Qi (energy) and improve the condition of the organs.

Can acupuncture really give you the face you thought you'd lost forever?

YES, say the acupuncturists who offer the procedure.If you're thinking of getting a little work done on your face, a younger-looking face may lie at the end of some needles -- acupuncture needles.

Jaw line getting a bit saggy? Is that great sense of humor leaving you with some not-so-funny laugh lines? Furrowed brow making you look like you're in a perpetual state of grouchiness? Prepare for the job market or family photo with a more youthful look!

After a series of 12 treatments the skin becomes more delicate and fair, and there are fewer wrinkles. The treatments also result in an erasing of fine lines and a reduction of deeper lines, less sagginess, a lifting of droopy eyelids, reduction of puffy pockets under the eyes/dark circles and a clearing or reduction of age spots plus there is an overall rejuvenation that is not confined to your face.

"Cosmetic acupuncture is a good alternative for women (or men) who don't want the side effects associated with a surgical facelift".

Acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is designed to free up chi, or energy. When the needles are applied to the body and face, production of collagen and elastin may be stimulated and skin is "plumped up."

By addressing other parts of the body in addition to the face, acupuncture assists the body's ability to support the "facelift."

Chinese medicine is the true anti aging medicine. It helps your own body create a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetic acupuncture is not for everyone. For example people suffering from continuous migraines, seizure disorders, or high blood pressure which is not controlled are probably not good candidates for cosmetic acupuncture.

Working on a 40-year-old face is different from a 60-year-old face and for that reason starting the treatments when you're in your 30s, or 40s is even more effective. Your lifestyle, diet, exercise or smoking cigarettes will also have an effect in the outcome of the treatments.

We don't just focus on the face...

Moving energy through the body with needles not only in the face but also the feet, legs, arms, head, and ears, stimulates collagen production and brings blood to the face.

Maintenance treatments are recommended every two / three months (depending on lifestyle and age).
